Review: Licence to Rock: Jawsome 2
Rebecca Timmis from Mertales fame now has a new series for kids that like a little more danger and a little more action in their books.
Jawsome 2 - Licence to Rock is so much fun, pure escapism for kids.
Two books in one! In the first story Finley and his band need to foil an evil plot by mean anglerfish who intend to shrink the sun.
In the second story Finley must overcome his fear of playing the wrong notes and slam out a tune to save the entire town from turning into zombies and being taken over by killer whales.
Lots of fun and action. The play on words will be enjoyed by the children and the adults reading to them. With many of the words resonating more with parent readers. ie: Cosmopolifin magazine, Michael Jackfin, Stranger Fins and Beverly Shells 90210.
Finley and crew are very modern, civilised fish with phones, computers and internet.
Extensively illustrated throughout, Jawsome really is awesome! If you like a bit of silly fun wrapped around fast-paced action and danger, you will love the Jawsome series.
